Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
In Jannah
there are a hundred grades which Allah has prepared for those who fight in His Cause; and the distance between any
two of those grades is like the distance between the heaven and the earth
This Hadith also tells us about the distinction of Mujahid in the Hereafter and their elevation to high

Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
anyone is pleased with Allah as his Rubb, with Islam as his religion and with Muhammad (PBUH) as (Allah's)
Messenger, surely, he will be entitled to enter Jannah
.'' Abu Sa`id was delighted with this and requested the
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) to repeat it. He (PBUH) repeated it again and then said, "
There is also another act by
which Allah will elevate the position of a (pious believing) slave in Jannah to a grade one hundred degrees higher.
And the distance between any two grades is equal to the distance between heaven and earth
.'' He asked the
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) what it was and he ((PBUH)) replied, "
Jihad in the way of Allah; Jihad in the way of
We learn from this Hadith that the people who will be sent to Jannah will be ranked there differently
according to this merits of their deeds. There will be innumerable positions in Jannah and Mujahid will have a
hundred of them.

Abu Bakr bin Abu Musa Al-Ash`ari reported: I heard my father saying in the presence of the enemy: The
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
The gates of Jannah are under the shades of the swords
.'' A man with a shaggy
appearance got up and said, "O Abu Musa! Did you hear the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) say that in person?'' Abu
Musa replied in the affirmative; so he returned to his companions and said: "I tender you farewell greetings.'' Then
he broke the scabbard of his sword and threw it away. He rushed towards the enemy with his sword and fought with
it till he was martyred.
Besides highlighting the distinction of Jihad, this Hadith tells us about the Companions' passion for
Jihad and ardent love for Allah and His Prophet (PBUH). It also tells about their firm faith in what was ordained by
Allah and His Prophet (PBUH). In fact, it was this certitude which inclined them more to the Hereafter rather than
this world.

Abu `Abs `Abdur-Rahman bin Jabr (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said, "
It will not happen that the feet soiled with dust while (doing Jihad) in the way of Allah, will be
touched by the fire (of Hell
Feet soiled with dust
'' means participation in Jihad. That is to say, a person takes part in Jihad and
yet goes to Hell is altogether impossible. What it signifies is that Jihad is a means of expiation of sins and that it
guarantees the admission into Jannah, provided he is not guilty of major sins. This exception is confirmed by other
